Another old 1950s commercial, this time for Wheaties cereal. As expected, the commercial has a sports theme. Taken from a old episode of "The Trouble with Father" which is also here in its entirety (note: episode ran 29 minutes, 3 to 4 minutes of that was advertising as per usual network practices for filmed programming).

Great retro commercial.
Great delivery by the narrator, who espouses the benefits of "wheat power." Plus, it's a great look back if you're a Pittsburgh Pirates fan.
